snack bars

  • f

European Meats in Kensington Market has a pretty good snack bar that serves stuff like hot dogs, burgers and sausages--not great food, but the prices are unbeatable. I'm told that the snack bars in Costcos aren't bad either. Any other notable noshes in places whose main business activity is something other than serving meals?

    the snack bars at costco are vile, putrid things.

    imagine the street food you get at nathan phillips square, but without the flavour, and with twice the grease. yuck.

    ikea is where it's at for food.

      "Vile, putrid things..." You make them sound so appealing. The snack bars at Ikea are pretty good, I guess, but it means having to go to Ikea.

          Speaking of Ikea, are there any decent Scandinavian restaurants in Toronto? I vaguely recall a place called the Copenhagen Room, that used to be on the corner of Bloor and St. Thomas.

          Also, I know Finland is not officially part of Scandinavia, but are there any Finnish restaurants in Toronto? I hear there are several in Thunder Bay, but that's a bit far to travel for a meal! There's Viking Foods at Laird & Eglington for Finnish deli items.

            Sigh....the Danish Food Centre at Bloor and St. Thomas. I used to pray for client lunches because we'd bring in Smorbrod (open face sandwiches)........don't know of any place like it but would love to hear of one.
